According to ENR, the construction industry confidence index climbed another four points to close at a 69 out of 100 points, and perhaps more importantly, ENR’s survey of 310 executives of large construction and design firms revealed that most believe that all construction market sectors are in growth mode. In addition to industry confidence, the report contains detailed economic data on changes in construction materials prices and inflation rates as well as average paycheck information for construction professionals.
